    Rome is a functioning capital city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during summer and at weekends. We would suggest you to check the operational hours for all the attractions included with the bus ticket according to the official website of the attraction as they keep changing according to the season or as per attraction authorities.

    During the Jubilee of Mercy for security reasons the Vatican Area and the path along Via della Conciliazione leading to St. Peter's Square will be closed to traffic to keep tourists and pilgrims safe.

    It is the responsibility of all visitors to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before departure. Guests arriving after departure cannot be accommodated & missed tours or tickets cannot be refunded.

    Extra measures may be implemented at some venues due to heightened global security. As a result, we may experience delays in getting through mandatory security checks when entering these venues.

To avoid disruptions or possible denied entry, we strongly suggest that you avoid bringing large purses, bags, or backpacks on your tour. The Colosseum does not have any cloakroom facilities in which to store such items.
